Assigned Study Interventions

Experimental: Chemotherapy Drug: R-ESHAP

Rituximab 375mg/m2 at day 0, Meththylprednisolone 500mg IV at days 1 to 5, Etoposide 40mg/m2 at days 1 to 4, Cisplatin 25mg/m2 at days 1 to 4, Cytarabine 2000mg/m2 at day 5. Frequence of cycles: every 3 weeks. Numbers of cycles: 3 cycles.
Other Name: Mabthera

Detailed Description:

The standard treatment in patients with refractory or relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is salvage chemotherapy followed by autologous transplantation for responsive patients. However, the standard of salvage chemotherapy remains uncertain. This study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of R-ESHAP regimen in a multi-center basis.
